I have photographed at Kerry Park many times but this Kerry Park Proposal takes the cake!
I was so excited when John contacted me about proposing to his long time boyfriend, Jaden, at Kerry Park in Seattle! They were flying in from Texas for a mini holiday vacation. Jaden is originally from the Seattle area. John was just visiting Seattle the first time he found Jaden and planned a big Seattle date for them.
From the sounds of things, they clicked right away! Jaden moved to Texas with John not long after that first amazing date. ♥
I was so excited to see the ring that John picked out for Jaden. When I finally got close enough to check it out I was very impressed! Black diamond bling all the way around. My favorite man’s band yet. So cool.
When I asked them, “did you guys look together?!” Jaden said, “Yes, like a year ago.” hahahaha I said, “Dang John, you took your time!”. We had such a fun time together!
One story I hear almost every proposal: Couples often get a little uneasy or “distant” right before a proposal. It’s probably the first (and hopefully last) time best friends try and keep a secret from each other! Keeping secrets to make surprises is HARD! So if your bff/significant other seems a little weird for no freakin reason, there might just be a ring waiting for you so be compassionate. There’s allot of pressure one might feel right before asking the biggest question of their life up to that point. You never know what someone might be going through that needs to stay a little further from you for a minute.
All of the other holiday visitors at Kerry Park from all over Seattle were so happy for them! There was clapping and congratulations and I was filled with joy to see such a great community celebrating love in Seattle.
Here was the plan: Jaden knew they were getting couples photos taken while on their trip to Seattle. John’s plan was to propose a few photos in. It worked out PERFECTLY!
